Heckington Windmill, Lincolnshire, UK

Situated in the pretty village of Heckington is this unique eight-sailed working mill which produces stone ground flour by wind power. Orginally built in 1830 as a five-sailer, a violent thunderstorm blew off the cap and sails and it was repaired in 1892 with the cap and eight sails from a windmill in Boston, Lincolnshire. This outstanding example of Victorian engineering was again restored in 2004.
